Your Local Bishop's Move

With over 20 locations in the UK, and also in Europe, our vast removals network ensures that you can experience a personal service from your local Bishop's Move team, as well as find affordable storage near your new or old property. As a leading home removal company, we pride ourselves on offering a full house moving service for all our clients.

How long does it take to move house?

It will take on average between 8 to 22 weeks to move house. This takes into account the time you should give notice to a removal company so that you can get a quote and book your moving date. Although exchange dates can move this should give your removal company notice and time to adjust their plans if needed.

Our experience of using Bishop's Move has been consistent over the 40 years we have used their services! This time topped our other moves.

We can recommend them for your most prestige clients!! Well done boys 👍
